Send Gmail in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam

Are you looking ways to send emails in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, or Malayalam. You can use the Gmail’s Indic Transliteration feature, to send email in Indian languages. Currently Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam are supported. When you type message in English, Gmail will automatically convert the word to its Indian local language equivalent (This feature need to be enabled ). This feature enhances the usability of the Gmail service for non-English users.

For ex, “namaste” we will transliterate to Hindi “नमस्ते”, and “vanakkam” in Tamil will become “வணக்கம்”. Press Ctrl+g to toggle between English and selected language.

How to Enable Indic Transliteration

Indian languages feature is enabled by default for Gmail users in India. If not do the following;

  • Go the Settings page
  • Enable Enable Transliteration by checking the box [see pic ]. If you don’t see Enable Transliteration , click the Show all language options link first to see this option.
  • Select default transliteration language (ex Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada or Malayalam).
  • Click Save Changes.
  • Go to Compose Mail page and click the language letter you set (one letter).
  • Start typing mail in english. This will translate English words into your language.
  • You can change the Indic Transliteration language in compose page.
  • Press Ctrl+g to toggle between English and Hindi(or Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam)
